Quote: General Field Marshall Erwin Rommel
“War makes extremely heavy demands on the soldier’s strength and nerves. For this reason, make heavy demands on your men in peacetime exercises.”
Quote: General Curtis E. Lemay, Chief of Staff, USAF
“I don’t mind being called tough, because in this racket, it’s tough guys who lead the survivors.”
Quote: John Stuart Mill
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person, who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important that his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
Quote: General Ulysses S. Grant
“In every battle, there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten; then he who continues the attack wins.”
Quote: General George S. Patton, Jr., USA
“There is only one sort of discipline – PERFECT DISCIPLINE. Men cannot have good battle discipline and poor administrative discipline.”
Quote: Alfred Thayer Mahan
“War, once declared, must be waged offensively, aggressively. The enemy must not be fended off; but smitten down. You may then spare him every exaction, relinquish every gain, but ‘til then he must be struck incessantly and remorselessly.”
Quote: General Robert E. Lee
“Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more. You should never wish to do less.”
Quote: General Joseph I. Collins
“The American people rightly look to their military leaders to be not only skilled in the technical aspects of the profession of arms, but to be men of integrity.”
Quote: General Omar Bradley
“Leadership is intangible; therefore no weapon ever designed can replace it.”
Quote: General Nathan Twining
“If our air forces are never used, they have achieved their finest goal.”
Quote: General Dwight D. Eisenhower
“If I didn’t have air supremacy, I wouldn’t be here.”
Quote: General Charles A. Gabriel, Chief of Staff, USAF
“Integrity is the fundamental premise for military service in a free society. Without integrity, the moral pillars of military strength, public trust, and self-respect are lost.”
Quote: Italian Air Marshall Guilio Douhet
“Victory smiles upon those who anticipate the changes in the character of war, not upon those who wait to adapt themselves after the changes occur.”
Quote: General Daniel S. “Chappie” James, USAF
“The power of excellence is overwhelming. It is always in demand, and nobody cares about its color.”
Quote: Father Denis Edward O’Brian, Sergeant, USMC
“It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.”
